A Friday thought and some photos.


Sky watch Friday same sky two ways of looking at it.







They say if life gives you lemons make lemonade, I am going to make some today from our little lemon tree.


A photo every day from my back door looking west

In the garden
  • A few months back I planted some potato peel in a bucket to see if they would grow for a month now they have been growing lovely green leaves but after all the rain we have had they started to go yellow and today I went out there was only one leaf left so i emptied the bucket and found these.(not the lemon)
I am thinking because the are so small I might chit them and replant them like seed potatoes. I still cant get over the thought that from scraps I can make more food.

  • planted some Tidy tips (I hope I am not too late)


Tidy Tips

Tidy-Tips (Layia platyglossa) is an annual wildflower of California. It blooms in Spring and is common in many habitats.
The name platyglossa means broad-tongued, referring to the ray flowers. But, I think the common name better suits it. The flowers look like they have been trimed with pinking shears.
Note: The cut produced by pinking shears may have given its name to (or be derived from) the plant name pink, a flowering plant in the genus Dianthus.

Snow watch

Sean and I went for a walk.





 tomorrow is a no tv & computer saturday plans to see the snow

  1. I've often wondered if you could grow potatoes from just peelings. How neat! I'll certainly be trying that this summer.

  2. You must have a green thumb. Potatoes from peel. I planted two old potatoes with eyes , only one grew and when the leaves died I pulled it up and all except one potato was rotten. Too much water me thinks. It looks a lovely day at your place today. The lemons are great too.

  10. I think it is awsome that you grew potatoes from peels. I didn't know it was possible. Have fun tomorrow. You have inspired me to do the same on Sunday. Not for religious reasons, but because.
